+ - RIAA Awarded $675,000 in Boston Trial->

Submitted by

NewYorkCountryLawyer writes "The jury awarded the record company plaintiffs $675,000 in the Boston trial defended by Prof. Charles Nesson, in SONY BMG Music Entertainment v. Tenenbaum. I was not surprised since exactly none of the central issues ever even came up in this trial, and since the judge had instructed the jurors that Mr. Tenenbaum was liable, and that their only task was to come up with a verdict that was more than $22,500 and less than $4.5 million. According to the judge, her reason for doing so was that when on the stand the defendant was asked if he admitted liability, he said 'yes'. The lawyers among you will know that that was a totally improper question, and that the Court should not have even allowed it, much less based her holding upon the answer to it."
